You can order pasta, steak or pizza and you will not be disappointed. We normally come by for appetizers and drinks and are never disappointed. The jambalaya is incredible along with the bread and the house dip. Don't forget to order a drink from the bar, they are real good.

The limited parking was not good and it sets right across th street from a fire station. When we sat down in the seat of the booth you sunk down in it. I will say that the service was OK. The lighting was dark but the acoustics was good so an older person could hear the person setting across from them. My wife said her posta was good . I had the beef ravioli and they weren't totally cooked and the tomato sauce tasted as if it came from a can and the whole meal was was but a little better than warm. At 6 pm there were only about 8 other customers. I've eaten here a couple of times in the past and found it to be very good but may not eat there abain.

Little Italy serves Italian food that rivals the best you will find any where in California. They serve food from all over Italy but they specialize in delicacies from Southern Italy and Sicily. It is a very warm and intimate restaurant After just a few visits, you are greeted by name and treated like family by all the staff.

My Wife and I were in Visalia, CA last Tuesday night with Family and met up with my Brothers at the Olive Garden (i know, but i didn't pick the place) for a late dinner. I went in with an open mind because I know you can get some food that does taste good, to average. We did not have reservations so we knew they would be getting us in late. Arrived around 6pm and placed my name on the list and were informed it would be around 45 minutes. Lots of people here waiting, with large groups ... as ours is a total of 8. They paged our devise about an hour and 10 minutes later ... no fault of theirs, sometimes you just don't know how long it will take. This is the only Olive Garden in the entire County.They placed us at a long table with bench seating on one side and chairs on the other. They split the group in half for ordering, which makes it real easy. This I like. Our Server is Daniel and he took our drink orders while we looked a the menu. My Wife decided on an appetizer, the 'Five Italian Cheese Fonduta' ($10.29); Oven-Baked Smoked Provolone, Parmesan, Fontina, Mozzarella & Romano Cheeses. I am going with the 'Chicken Marsala' ($19.29); Sauteed Chicken Breast in a Savory Sauce of Mushrooms, Garlic & Marsala Wine. Served with a Blend of Roasted Potatoes.Not sure what everyone else ordered, but they brought out the Bread Sticks for all and also the Salads for those that requested it with their order. The Salad is in a big bowl and you scoop out what you want. I did, and should of put it back. The lettuce was weak and old, not cold, some had brown spots, but the rest of the salad was okay. I did not see anyone eat all of their salad plate. They had Two Bread Stick Baskets and only Two Bread Sticks were taken and tried by four of us (not me) ... and there were some of the two sticks left. Was told they were a little old and dry.Soon the food arrived and some of it looks pretty good. My Wife and I are sharing what we ordered and the 'Five Italian Cheese Fonduta' was a little burnt and very oily with the cheese kind of bland, with some of the Bread burnt on the edges. The ones that were not burnt were pretty good, but the Cheese Fonduta had little taste, except for the Burnt Seasoning Taste they use ... it sure tasted like it to me. My 'Chicken Marsala' chicken part was dry and a burnt taste to the sauteed topping. The part that was pretty good were the Mashed Potatoes. They were presented in a way I have not seen and at first did not know what it was, but it tasted pretty good. The rest of the plate was basically tasteless, except for the burnt parts.The Service was not very good. We had empty dishes on our table up until we left. They did not remove any of them until we were about to leave, and it was to make room for us to sign the bill. This is just one more reason why we do not go to the Olive Garden. Doesn't matter where one is, you just don't know what you are going to get. Most of the time, the food will taste good, but their prices are ridiculously high for what you get on your plate. The Staff here are really nice people and the place is decorated really cool. Nicely done.You can check them out, but don't ... sometimes you can actually get a decent meal, but not this time.It was great having dinner with both my Brothers and my Little Brothers Family ... and their is nothing little about them ... all are Big Boys now.
